Hello my lovelies,
For me, Mascara is quite a tricky thing to get right. People want different things from their lashes. I have average length lashes which I can’t really complain about and I am all up for extra lengthening from a mascara but for me it is all about volume. I love a slightly clumpy lash look that is big and bold. I don’t like wearing false lashes so for me a mascara has to do the job and well.
L’Oreal’s fairly recent mascara, Miss Baby Roll seemed to get a lot of bloggers and influencers talking. I have had this in my collection for a little while now and I am finally getting around to reviewing this. Just so you know I have this mascara in black, I don’t tend to go for any other colour, but the other colours available look so cool I just don’t have the confidence to wear them! So the claims on this are:
It’s time to say bye-bye to boring lashes and hello to new Miss Baby Roll Mascara, for mega volume, curl and all-day hold. Our mega curl roller brush curls lashes from the root, for an instant lash lift! The Quick Mega Volume formula volumises lashes and holds them in a curl all day
Who doesn’t want this, not just volume but MEGA volume along with an all day hold of a curl. There is nothing more annoying than curling your lashes and they look amazing for 2 hours later to find that the curl has completely dropped and the whole exercise was pointless. Anyway, before I start talking about whether I agree with these claims lets talk about the packaging. How cute!? I love the use of pastel colours and is unlike anything I have seen before when it comes to a mascara. It most definitely works for me and has a 60’s vibe to it.
Now, I will agree with the fact that my lashes are not boring when I wear this mascara. My lashes feel instantly uplifted and I feel that my eyes look wider, not crazy wide but you can definitely see a difference which I love. The volume this mascara gives is near enough perfect for me. I haven’t ever had an issues with my lashes going clumpy they just look full and obviously voluminous.
The curl I must say does hold, I mean it’s not like you have just applied a coat to your lashes but it is an improvement on if you didn’t have any mascara on. The applicator of this mascara, is quite interesting. They are short, sturdy plastic bristles which allow for all your lashes to be coated in a roll motion. It’s pretty clever to be honest and I think it is really nice for application.
What I love most about this mascara is that it doesn’t give me panda eyes. I know this sounds silly but I hate buying waterproof versions of mascara just to stop this because it’s a complete bugger to get off. It works amazingly for my bottom lashes and I never have any blackness underneath or above my eye which is a massive winner for me.
A slight niggle I have is that with some of my cleansers (which let me add are pretty good) struggle to remove this mascara causing my eyes to go all red. I do have to bear this in mind especially when I go crazy on my mascara it’s instant regret as soon as I want to remove it. I guess it’s something to bear in mind if you struggle with mascaras in general and have a sensitive eye are.
Overall, I really love this mascara. It’s a great drugstore find and I think L’Oreal in my opinion are the best for drugstore mascaras. There is just something about them, they really understand what people want from their lashes and this one is no exception apart from it being a little tricky to remove I can’t really fault it. I love wearing this and to be honest it just looks pretty in my collection.
